Bryan Fuller Talks Hannibal Movie Hopes, Clarice Starling
'Hannibal' has reached its short-lived end with a finale that is both satisfying and vague. Hollywood Reporter got a chance to chat with Bryan Fuller, who had this to say regarding the potential of the series were it given a revival.
"Martha De Laurentiis (executive producer) is looking into financing for a film" Fuller said. "There is something in the novel 'Hannibal' that has not been done in any of the adaptations and I would love to explore that with Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter."
Fuller has stated in the past that he would love to have used Clarice Starling in some capacity in the series, and he's optioned two routes were he given that dream opportunity.
"Ellen Page would knock it out of the park... (Page) has a lot of the qualities that we remember about Jodie Foster's performance but yet unique in her skill set as an actress." The other direction he would consider would be to cast a non-white actor in the role and use race to help define his re-imagining of the character.
